One cannot deny that one of the few things positive about 2006’s version of Sonic the Hedgehog was the music. It had a wide array of melodies and themes from rock n’ roll, hip-hop, and contemporary to name a few. Earlier this morning, Bentley Jones, who is the singer of the hit song “Dreams of An Absolution” released a brand-new music video featuring him singing and running in different locals.

Bentley Jones is claiming that SEGA has used his music for a record release without his permission. Specifically “True Colors: The Best of Sonic the Hedgehog Part 2″record that featured some produced tracks from the singer.
“The only people who have been profiting from the exploitation of me and my music are SEGA,” – Bentley Jones
As much as it saddens me that an artist doesn’t get paid for the work they put in. Even if I don’t like this artists music, maybe SEGA should not hire him for future projects? I would be fine with that.
